What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

I don't care, but just in case it's somehow important:

I was just awarded mortarboard, and it seems reputation from CW posts was erroneously taken into account. This reputation also shows in my reputation graph.

(One upvote was cast on the CW question in the short moment it took to ask a moderator to make it CW. The answer has always been CW. This may be related to a reputation recalc I triggered today, after deleting an unrelated answer. My reputation report correctly shows 155 score for April 11th.)

The answer does not look like CW according to revisions-list –  YOU Apr 13 '11 at 12:41

@YOU, yes, it shows different when making it CW before the first save. Changing it within the grace period actually does show it, and so does changing it afterwards. That's a bit odd indeed. (In all, there's 145 too much reputation, which is the total of both question and answer, minus 5 for the very first upvote on the question.) –  Arjan Apr 13 '11 at 12:43

This might be a duplicate of Bug: my reputation history shows points for cw answers, though that does not mention mortarboard. –  Arjan Apr 15 '11 at 15:57
    
Aww, you got the Mortarboard? I was always looking up to you for getting as far as you have without hitting the cap. It was one of my early goals to see if I could hit 10k without ever hitting the cap, but that plan got blown out of the water. Well, at least in reality, you still haven't hit the cap. ♪ –  Grace Note Apr 19 '11 at 20:07
    
Maybe one day I will understand why hitting the cap is bad, or less fun, @Grace... ;-) –  Arjan Apr 19 '11 at 20:40
    
And, @Grace, it happened to me before. I just didn't know I should feel sad about it! ;-) –  Arjan Apr 19 '11 at 20:45

This was an error occurring when a recalc was performed on a user. A tweak to fix old unassociated posts was not correctly ignoring community wiki cases elsewhere. This has been fixed and is rolling across the network at the time of this answer.

We'll recalc 500 users an hour in the background until this is complete everywhere (about 2 hours from now). As an example: @Arjan your rep was fixed by this process already.

Okidoki. I still have the mortarboard, if that is important. –  Arjan Apr 19 '11 at 19:57
    
@Arjan - Badges will be fixed in a deployment tonight :) –  Nick Craver Apr 19 '11 at 23:51

Although I thought this was a different issue, the same symptom is seen in the reputation tab:
